This video should be a classic for years to come. Gov. Sarah Palin gave an interview this week after giving a turkey the annual reprieve — a photo op that all politicians crave. This is not exactly what they strive for. As she speaks to reporters, look over her shoulder. A man proceeds to slaughter less politically connected turkeys behind her.
Of course, Palin may be able to claim to have personally uncovered health code violations. Open-air slaughtering may be permitted in Alaska, but that place looks like an invitation for a surprise inspection.
I love how the turkey guy is watching eagerly as he stuffs a turkey head first in the machine. It is a powerful backdrop for Palin to recount her blessings of the year. I particularly like how Palin speaks of how brutal the campaign has been with the guy working over these birds in the background.
We can all look forward to Palin’s Annual Christmas Greetings from the fat rendering plant.
